Consistently one of Indian distillery Amrut's most popular bottles, Fusion is a rich and warming single malt with delicious notes of fresh fruit and vanilla, followed by a smoky finish.

Amrut Fusion is created from a mix of 75% unpeated Indian barley and 25% peated Scottish barley. These are separately distilled and aged for four years, then 'fused' together for a further three months. The result is an award-winning whisky that has introduced many people to the splendours of Indian whisky.

Tasting Notes

ByStuart Peskett
The Whisky Exchange

Nose Fresh and tinned fruit – peaches, mangos, apricots, plus spicy cinnamon and clove, joined by aromas or Earl Grey tea and just a touch of smoke and sea spray.

Palate A real hit of fresh fruit and citrus-orange notes, with black pepper and cinnamon adding a zingy layer of spice. Rich and refreshing; absolutely delicious.

Finish The spice and fruit linger for a long time.

About Amrut

Amrut Distilleries was founded in 1948 by JN Radhakrishna. Its initial products were brandy and rum, but in 1982 it became the first company to make single malt whisky in India, discovering along the way that the warm Bangalore climate matures whiskies at three times the rate of that in Scotland.

Amrut, which means 'nectar of the gods' in Sanskrit, was introduced to the overseas market in 2004, where it has since gained a loyal following. Popular bottles in its range include Amrut Cask Strength, Amrut Rye and Amrut Fusion.

    When I looked at this and read that it is Indian, I felt, what on earth did someone in India thought of making a single malt? And my word, this is amazing. Perfect balance of tastes. I would have rated only 4, had it been above 100 $ but this one is so awesomely priced that I can use it regularly.

    Surprised to see an Indian single malt at a package shop in Smyrna, next to a McCallan. It was a bit more, but I thought what the heck, I'll give it a try. I was surprised by its gorgeous taste-kind of smokey. Drop any thing else and buy this, if you find it, that is. They need to jazz up the packaging, but then the packaging is for the cows,its the whiskey that's interesting.

    "Nose" (undiluted) Concentrated floral notes of mint, lavender, jasmine and loam. Brine too. Intriguing. "Palate" (undiluted) Powerful horse kick of cedar, cloves, cardamon, spiced dark treacle, coriander. Dark chocolate that has a heavy weighting of cocoa. Some big peat notes reminiscent of Islay are also present. "Finish" (undiluted) Long lingering flavors of polished mahogany, leather, mouth watering body, red and black licorice, slight anise, pungent cocoa, raisin, Moroccan dates. Rich black coffee. During the finish, your palate will tingle and the flavors spiced quality continues. Repeated sips are less vibrant, no doubt because the palate is dulled by the 50% abv.

    Absolutely delightful. Sadly, we get only the 42.8 ABV version in India, but that dilution does not detract from its nose or palate. The finish is somewhat short.

    Nice and heavy on the nose, with barley coming on strong; fruity background hint. Calamondin and tangerine, spices, creamy sweetness. A waft of peat. The palate senses the rich oak, gentle peat, a trace of ovaltine, Lindt. Fruity. The finish is long, spiced, marmalade, fading away into Kinnow sweetness. The English used needs sprucing up.

    Quite a good Whisky. I tried this at an Indian restaurant in Oslo and I loved it. Even though whiskey and food did not pair well; before main course this whisky worked like a charm. My husband was also impressed with this whisky and we ordered two of it now. The design of this bottle need to be improve, also the labelling and description can be a bit chic. Other then that this whisky gives scottish whiskey a run for there money.

    I usually don't write any review but I will make an exception this time. I ordered Amrut fusion and received in a very elegant and secure packing. It's affordable yet does not compromise on taste. Very woody and rich and finishes of with citrusy or I should say marmalade and hint of sweetness. I will buy again not just because its affordable but gives lot pleasure whole drinking this fine single malt whiskey.
